william is in the hospital with her. she is there and it is through her going into hospital, to be honest, that we learned this news, that she is pregnant. because she is no the at the 12 week stage, the crucial stage. i don't think the palace would have want wanted to make this announcement as early as this. people would have said why is she in hospital. they've made the announcement announcing sir james palace their royal highness the duke and duchess are pleased to announce the dutches of cambridge is expecting a baby. they won't say when the baby is due. we don't know if it's going to be a boy or a girl. one interesting aspect, andrea, the british government changed the law just this year in preparation for this, a lieu that would have been in these modern times considered sexist which said that only a baby boy could be in line for the throne. whether or not this baby is a girl or a boy, she or he will be in line for the throne, third in line for the throne after charles, after william. so it's a very important moment coming up for the country, of course, because not only is it a new

justices have to agree to take up a case. pete williams joining us live now by telephone from inside the supreme court building. pete, first of all, what what are the separate issues here that the justices could be taking a look at? >> well, there are two and it seems the most likely if the court will take any of these cases is a challenge to a federal law called the defense of marriage act passed by congress in 1996, signed by president clinton. and it says if a couple a legally married under state law, one of the nine states that now or soon will grant the right for same-sex couples to get married, those marriages are not recognized under federal law and as a practical matter, that deprives those couples of about 1,000 federal benefits. that law has been challenged by lawsuits in several states. if seems pretty likely the court will take that case because it'sen validating an act of congress. so it seems pretty likely that the court will take that or we could find that out this afternoon. now, the other big thing we're watching is the challenge to california's proposition 8, the vo
took no action today on the pending gay marriage cases. justice correspondent pete williams is live for us at the supreme court. this is now two weeks in a row, pete, that we thought we would get an answer to them about how they would plan on taking up this question of gay marriage. >> right. two case, the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 from california. nothing on the orders list today. so we'll find out later today whether the court is going to take it up again at its closed door conference on this friday. so my guess is this friday will be the next day we'll find out whether or not they'll take either of these two cases, chuck. >> and, pete, your expectation is can they put it all into one case or -- >> reporter: no, they can't. they're completely separate issues. the defense of marriage act is a federal law. it says nothing about whether states have to recognize gay marriage. it just says that if they do the federal government won't recognize them. the prop 8 case potentially raises a much more fundamental issue whether a state can deny same-sex marriage. the court cou
of questions remain. john, thanks very much. >>> now, we have royal news, huh? >> we do. william and kate. we love to talk about them. america's always watching, as is the world. the duchess making headlines with a brand-new look last night. and the couple currently on the brink of a life-changing decision. the prince, just days away from choosing to extend his service as a soldier or becoming a full-time royal. abc's lama hasan has the story. >> reporter: this morning's full lineup of events may be a test of sorts. is william ready to give up high-octane adrenaline-fueled flying life as a search and rescue pilot to start standing in more and more for his grandmother, the queen? six events. that's six here in cambridge. the two of them, drawing huge crowds wherever they go. even kate, the glamorous half of this dynamic duo, is stepping out on her own. solo last night. debuting a glossy, new hair cut, with a dress reminiscent of diana. >> william and i are two of millions of people, who have passed through these doors. and marvelled at the spectacular wonders of the natural world. >> reporter:

high-profile cases that would help define the rights and benefits of same-sex couples. pete williams is the justice correspondent. he joins me from outside the supreme court. good morning, pete. >> reporter: good morning, chris. we're wait to go hear whether the court will take either of these two cases. the defense of marriage act passed in 1996 by congress, signed into law by president clinton. and what it says is that for federal law purposes, marriage can exist only between a man and a woman. so that means this in the nine states where same sex marriage is legal, if a same sex couple gets married there, they're considered mayrried for state lw but not federal law and the practical consequence is they are denied about 1,000 federal benefits, tax benefits, survivors benefits, to be covered under health insurance. that sort of thing. it will have to decide whether that law is unconstitutional discrimination, denying those couples equal treatment. what the advocates of overturning it say is never before has the federal government done anything but defer to a state's definition of wha

behind it. apparently he believes roger williams, who founded rhode island in 1636, would not want to call a christmas tree a christmas tree. or something. now, this is insane, of course. there is no reason to mess around with the word christmas. as we reported, president grant signed a law making christmas a federal holiday. there really isn't any controversy. unless congress revokes the holiday. christmas is christmas. it celebrates the birth of jesus. therefore, the word christmas images of jesus, and a songs or poems or stories discussing him are appropriate under the law. secular progressives hate that. they don't like public displays of jesus because christians believe he's god. and christians are the enemy. this has been going on for ten years now. really got heat add few years ago when dopey department store chains ordered their employees not to say the word christmas. as you may remember, we got involved here at the factor factor. that largely stopped. now misguided politicians like lincoln chaffey trying to use their power to diminish christmas because the private sector
the people want to get something done will be in the words of tennessee williams, relying on the kindness of strangers. anyone in the minority will be able to demand not just a majority of senators to pass a bill but a super majority of 60. that means we're not going to see much get done, are we? the other way to make the government more active, of course, more responsive to the country's need is for one party to do a bang-up job, manifestly good job that people rewarded with a strong super majority of support in the u.s. senate. along with a majority in the house and regularly re-electing democratic or republican presidents.
